You forgot something essential:

It's ridiculous! It's not even funny!

We now return to your regularly scheduled thread.

I went under the same barrage of "You're going to hell". They were probably older than your cousin, but it only meant more hostility towards me after I pulled out my Bible to whip out a Leviticus line forbidding shrimp eating.
Mmmm, pasta.

My extended family in Poland are deeply Catholic, and they love me, so they don't scream at me and all, but just mutter to themselves with a sad resignation that I'm going to hell. They pray for me, too. I feel kinda bad about it, but I'm not gonna pretend to believe something I don't, and I'm not gonna lie to my grandmother, who's depressed enough already about my grandfather's death.

I've heard a comeback to that (i.e. the prohibitions on food that many don't adhere to while pulling out Leviticus to do things like whack gay couples over the head with it): that proper cooking techniques have made the rules unneccessary (though I'm not certain what great advances in stone oven technology occurred between the Old and New Testaments to cause this).

I haven't yet heard a reason why they don't only wear similar fibres (not sure of the reason for this one), keep their forelocks uncut (as an outward expression of their faith) or leave the edges of their fields unreaped (as a form of charity, to leave food for the poor and destitute).

Snork! I love a good inside joke!

Back on topic, I think I'll enjoy hell. Mark Twain said that's where he wanted to go. It'll be fun chatting with him I'm sure.

Satan bless you too

Postby NeferKa on Mon Jul 03, 2006 5:28 pm

It is my thought that if the afterlife is as the “you’re going to hellâ€￾ people think it is then I definitely do not want to go there! Why would I want to spend all eternity with a deity that doesn’t like women or homosexual people? All of the fun people would be in hell if that’s the way it is. A lot of great historical figures would be there because they died before Christianity was invented, they weren’t Christian, or they weren’t the type of Christianity that gets people in the fundie heaven.


During finals week on campus there were a couple of guys standing outside of the student union with bibles and posters yelling at everyone that they were going to hell if they didn’t study the Christian Bible. They screamed things along the lines of, “It is the only text book you need! You can’t get into heaven without 100% score! You’re going to Hell!â€￾ The police were called, which was pretty funny. I had to walk between them a couple times, and because I was ignoring them, they yelled louder. When I was almost past them, they yelled, “God bless you.â€￾ I turned around and gave them my best smile and said in my sweet, little girl voice, “Satan bless you too,â€￾ and took off to class. I don’t think that was the reaction they were expecting! :wink:

Yeah, and just think of how crummy the shoe stores must be there!

Yeay for your reply to the Hell-bullies*. I might have said: " ...and may the Flying Spaghetti Monster forgive you!"

*Ooooh... Hell-bullies. Sounds like hillbillies. Did the FSM just reveal a new term? Hee hee!

No, I think the FSM just shed light on a term and connection that was always there... :wink:
